“Excellent for the solo traveller!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

I was in Oz travelling solo. This tour was recommended by the reception at the hostel. I am soooo glad I went. Fun, laid back enjoyable. Was picked up by Gillie in the morning, from the minute we got on the bus until was got back he was full of life (seriously how that possible?) Visited some beautiful waterfalls and had a swim. Gillie prepared us lovely fresh fruit and real coffee whilst we swam. Bring your own lunch or money, we stopped off at a small bar/cafe for lunch, simple and cheap but does the job! Gillie somehow brought the whole tour together and by the end of it, most of us had agreed to meet that night for "a drink" which turned into a 2am finish......not good when flying at 6am lol WARNING!!!!!! only go if you intend on having fun!! You won't be disappointed!

“Fun filled tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is the best tour I went on in Australia. The size of the group was perfect and we stopped at some beautiful waterfalls. We were lucky enough to have Gillie as our tour guide, who quickly made the group relax and bond with each other. He told us funny stories throughout the day and was generally a funny character who had us laughing from beginning to end.

Great day out!

“Back to my hippy days..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

On our last day in Cairns, we jumped on Emma's bus to start a day trip with no itinerary and expectation, met a group of back packers no older than 22, got shout a bottle of bubbles at lunch time, slide down from a natural rock slide for my first time and just totally chilled with my good friends for a relaxing day. This is not a typical commercial operated tour, it is more like a party bus kept surprised us with the iconic kiwi/aussi lay back attitude and zest hospitality.

“Best waterfall tour ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

One of the best tour I have ever been on, our guide Emma was great fun and had an amazing amount of knowledge of the areas and history. The day was full of laughs and smiles, even though it rained on the day we went, it was still amazing and we were going to get wet anyway so it didn't bother us, just make sure you bring a couple of towels and some dry clothes. It is aimed at the age group of about 18-30 (you have to be 18+ to do the tour and it helps if you can swim) which was perfect for me, even though my parents were the oldest (60+) on the tour they were not left out, by the end of the day everyone was acting like old friends that had known each other forever
If you are planning on doing it definitely ask for EMMA

“Absolutely fantastic! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

It was an awesome day! Josh our guide was fantastic. It was just such a relaxing and fun day. It didn't even feel like a tour, it felt more like a mate showing us around with a bunch of friends. Josh was even kind enough to shout us a couple a tequila body shots for our first year wedding anniversary :D I would highly recommend if you are in Cairns!
